 The United States, Britain and France launched missile air strikes to test the air defense capability of the Syrian army.


The Iran Fars news agency reported on April 26th that the Iran Fars news agency said in April that a media analyst in Syria said the US led missile attack on the 14 morning was aimed at testing the defense capabilities of the Syria army, because the Syria army had shot down an Israeli aircraft in February. The Russian satellite news agency Arabic website quoted Mustafa Mikdad, chief editor of the Syria revolutionary newspaper, on the 15 day that the United States failed to hit the target of action against a missile attack on the Syria army positions near Damascus and Holmes. Mick Dad stressed that the achievements of the Syria army in East Guta and the liberation of the strategic heavy town of the Duma from the terrorists were a milestone in the war against terrorism. He also said that the US led missile attack is intended to pull this great achievement aside. Mick Dad said the US UK law is likely to believe that the Syria army accidentally shot down the Israeli Air Forces F-16 fighters in February, and therefore intends to test the combat readiness and capability of the Syria military missile defense system. He pointed out that the interception of 71 of the more than 100 United States missiles showed the defense capability of the Syria army and sent out this important message that Damascus and its allies were ready to respond to any act of aggression at any time. The United States, Britain and France launched more than 100 missiles to Syria on the morning of 14, and Russia said Damascus managed to intercept 71 of them. President Trump delivered a televised speech to the nation, saying the 3 countries jointly launched a missile attack. The air attack is the largest public attack on the 3 Western powers during the 7 years of civil war in Syria. During the civil war, the United States and its allies opposed Russia. Israel also did not take part in todays attack, for fear of Irans response. After the recent missile attack on the T4 base in Syria, Tel Aviv has been vigilant against Irans severe retaliation. 12 people were killed in the attack, including 7 Iran military advisers. Two days ago, at a national security conference held at the White House, the news that defense President Matisse opposed the target of a possible response to Tehran and Moscow, urged Trump and national security adviser John Bolton to think wisely and reduce the scope of the attack. The Pentagon claims that the air strike target is a research center of the great Malaysia and a chemical weapons storage facility and a command post to the west of Holmes, while the United Nations Organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons (OPCW) officially declared the complete destruction of chemical weapons in Syria two years ago. At the time of the missile attack, a group of OPCW was investigating the so-called chemical weapons attack in Duma last week in Damascus, but the 3 Western allies did not wait for their findings, and the reasons were unknown.
